The new Huawei Mate 10 features some impressive features that will really bring in some fanfare.

The Mate 10 is an impressive phone that’s catching up to name brands. (Via Huawei.)

For starters, it’s now equipped with stylish curved Corning Gorilla Glass casing. This offers extra protection to its already durable body. Instead of aluminum like previous generations, the Huawei Mate 10 is now a lot meaner on both sides. The glass casing covers the front and back of the phone, which offers extra protection for both sides.

If you like to lay your phone downwards on the table like I do, you’ll appreciate it.

The Mate 10 now also has water resistance as well. That doesn’t mean it’s waterproof. It can handle basic spills and light rain, but it’s “dunkable” into your kitchen sink.

Most people in the US have never even heard of Huawei, but they’re a smartphone company that’s making waves. The build quality of their phones are nearly equivalent to a middle-class name-brand phone. The Mate 10 comes equipped with a nice OLED display with HDR10 support for clear and colorful picture quality at 6.0” FHD at 2160 x 1080 pixels for a nice experience.

It’s the first phone ever to be powered by a Kirin 970 8-core CPU and with RAM options of up 6GB and 128GB of storage, you’re not missing much.

It’s running Andriod 8 Oreo with Emotion UI (their own native UI skin). It also has SuperCharge tech which allows you to charge your phone to 50% in just 30 mins. Smaller companies like these continue to impress.

It’s available in brown, blue, gray, and gold and is readily available from select retailers for about $1000 USD.
